A deeply emotional tale about Sophie Duncan, a successful columnist whose world falls apart after her daughter’s unexpected illness and her husband’s shocking affair. When it seems nothing else could possibly go wrong, her car skids off an icy road and plunges into a frozen lake. There, in the cold dark depths of the water, a profound and extraordinary experience unlocks the surprising secrets from Sophie’s past, and teaches her what it means to truly live...and love.

Full of surprising twists and turns and a near-death experience that will leave you breathless, this story is not to be missed.

"A box of tissues should be included in the purchase price of this book.... I finished THE COLOR OF HEAVEN in a matter of hours, but I've no doubt the read and the lessons imparted through Sophie's story will stay with me... probably forever. THE COLOR OF HEAVEN is an incredibly poignant and unbelievably gripping novel, deserving Romance Junkies' highest rating."

  • I Couldn't Stop Reading!

    I starting reading this book because 1, it was free and 2, I had nothing else to read. I am glad I did! I couldn't put the book down. Julianne MacLean can write. I was engrossed, from beginning to the end. The story was sad, and depressing at times but, so is real life. That's what made it so real and engaging. I have already bought the second and third book in the series. I will probably read all of her books, I'm hooked.:-)
